This question has been lingering on every K-fans at the moment, “Who is Han Seo Hee?”
Known as a self-proclaimed feminist, the 24-year-old has been making headlines not only in her home country of South Korea, but also on international news outlets, all thanks to her involvement in several controversies with numerous popular celebrities.
For those interested, we’ve compiled a list of idols and celebrities who have once gotten involved in a scandal with this ex-K-pop trainee. Keep in mind that this list is arranged randomly and not according to the exact date it happened:
To kick off the list, let’s throwback to the year 2017.
1. BIGBANG’S T.O.P (최승현)
For the uninitiated, Han Seo Hee’s name first appeared after she was involved with BIGBANG rapper T.O.P’s marijuana case. She was also revealed to be the “Tazza” actor’s girlfriend back when she was still a trainee under YG Entertainment.
According to reports, both of them smoked marijuana together. As a result, she was sentenced to 4-year of probation period and had to spend 120 hours of drug treatment sessions.
2. BTS’ V (뷔)
Han Seo Hee revealed during one of her Instagram live that she has seen BTS member V at a local night club when she was 19. Her statement generated a significant amount of controversy due to the fact that V and Han Seo Hee are the same age (both were born in 1995); they are considered underage and prohibited to enter such place.
She also revealed that model Kim Ki Bum was responsible for bringing V (real name Kim Tae Hyung) to the club. “I met V because (Kim) Ki Bum brought him to the club. I don’t know V very well. But I was close to Ki Bum and he brought V with him,” Seo Hee clarified.
Initially, she didn’t have any idea that the Daegu-born idol was there in the first place. “I didn’t ask him to come. I had a table reserved and V came. I’m only telling the truth. I saw him at the club and that’s it. I couldn’t just tell someone who came to my table to leave,” she further added in the clip.
3 & 4. gugudan’s Kim Na Young (김나영) and Hana (하나)
Han Seo Hee and also members of K-pop girl group gugudan – Kim Na Young and Hana – came under fire for an alleged hang out session together back in May 2019.
For those who don’t know, Han Seo Hee was also a former trainee of Jellyfish Entertainment – home label to gugudan and also VIXX – and was also slated to debut with other members of the girl group. However, she left the company just before gugudan debuted back in 2016.
Even though the 2 female idols’ faces were covered with stickers, it was obvious enough for K-pop fans (especially gugudan fans Danjjaks) to point that out. As a response, netizens expressed their disappointment towards the girls for their association with Seo Hee, knowing that it will put their career at risk.
5. iKON’s B.I (비아이)
The case between Han Seo Hee and also iKON’s former leader B.I (real name Kim Han Bin) has been the talk of the town, even until the today.
We believe everyone already knows about the “Love Scenario” hit maker being involved in a drug scandal earlier this year, which resulted in him parting ways with the award-winning group. In this case, B.I was caught red-handed purchasing illegal drugs – namely marijuana and also LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) back in 2016 from a former YG trainee known as “A”.
Word has it that “A” is actually Han Seo Hee. However, she quickly shut down all the allegations and in turn filed a report to Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission against YG Entertainment for covering up about B.I’s past drug case. The case is still ongoing.
6 & 7. MONSTA X’s Wonho (원호) and Shownu (셔누)
Besides B.I, the recent news of Han Seo Hee’s involvement in the ongoing scandals surrounding MONSTA X members Shownu and Wonho has caused a significant uproar among K-fans worldwide as well.
Previously, Jung Da Eun – Han Seo Hee’s girlfriend – claimed that Wonho hasn’t paid her a substantial amount of money that he owed her in the past. To top it off, Han Seo Hee continued to add fuel by bringing up the 26-year-old’s past as a juvenile school student, which resulted to his departure from the group.
As for Shownu, Seo Hee spilled that the 27-year-old singer was involved in a scandal with a married woman. In this case, she revealed in an Instagram story post a conversation she had with the husband of the supposed woman Shownu was having an affair with.
As a result, MONSTA X’s agency, Starship Entertainment came out with a statement – denying all the false allegations. In addition, Starship revealed their attempt to protect their artistes from further defamation by bringing forward the ongoing case surrounding the duo to court.
8. Kim Jae Joong (김재중)
Han Seo Hee revealed in the past that she was a Cassiopeia (TVXQ stan), and her bias was Hero Jae Joong. She once took to Instagram, claiming that she managed to meet the boy band in person back in 2005. “Found an old photo while going through my albums. The yellow padding is me. I was a bbaeknyeo (bad woman),” she wrote on the caption.
Not only that, she also reportedly has spammed the “Manhole” actor’s social media post with tons of messages, claiming that she is a die-hard fan of him. In addition, she posted on her Instagram story saying that Jae Joong is “stalking” her online, bragging about how the Korean heartthrob often sees her updates on Instagram.
It did not stop there, though. She continued to spam her Instagram stories by tagging Jae Joong as well as posting pictures of her collection of TVXQ albums.
9. Astro’s Cha Eun Woo (차은우)
On July 2018, Han Seo Hee uploaded a picture of Cha Eun Woo on her personal Instagram, along with the caption, “Eunwoo, you are the reason Korea will have a brighter future,” showing her interest towards the “Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung actor.
AROHAs (Astro fans) took her post the hard way, though. In this case, her pure intention of supporting the boy group member received a massive amount of backlash from his fans, asking her to stay away from him.
There you have it! We really hope that this list will not continue as we are saying.
